Is it possible to change ONLY the Glass?
I'd like to know if it is possible to exchange the top glass of the Galaxy Nexus i9250. The screen on my device is working OK. Only the glass has cracked. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks .
yes you can replace just the glass which is LCD screen or also known as digitizer. you can buy the LCD screen on websites easily by looking up the model and could look up the teardown for it if you are willing to do the repair yourself.
To the edit post for the OP don't buy the cheap 34$ screen. First its only the screen (just a piece of glass its not actually a screen) its not connected to the connectors and this is a very professional repair which is a high risk on breaking it while you try to connect it. I do these repairs daily and I would not attempt it. Just buy the real LCD digi which is the 2nd link and get a professional to do the repair for you.
Thanks for your insight Azmar!
Yes I have successfully done this repair. I actually did it just last week in the shop. Just youtube the teardowns. Go from cell phone back housing to the front of the phone is the way you need to start. When taking it apart keep a reminder of screws, FLEX CABLES ( dont rip any), and a good tool is to use a guitar pick if you want to get inside the phone.
Always remind yourself of where the flex cables are and when you get the combo screen off, just be careful when putting everything together. This is not a beginner repair and good luck.
For the adhesive im not too sure what I use its some type of double sided adhesive that is very strong. its 1/4 and has an outer brown layer on it is the best way I can describe it.
I think you can.
I also think it's pretty easy, but you need to be really really careful.
I tried using the method xicotorro posted above, this one.
Seems the gnex glass is connected the same way.
I broke my screen. Apparantly the screen isnt very elastic. : )
Anyone in the Oslo, Norway area who happens to have a spare phone?
i found this video, any posibility to work on the galaxy nexus http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aZuiCsAtT...
I've tried this myself on the Galaxy Nexus i9250. Unless you have done something like this before you have 0% chance of this working out.
If you do then:

Omigod, what a pile of nearly UNBELIEVABLE bullshit of momentous proportion, if I didn't know better I'd believe this person doesn't really believe that but just threw it in because he likes being a $@$*-disturber. This repair is like anything else: read, read, read, learn, learn, learn. YES it's &&^&^$^ VERY doable if you go about it right, meaning you invest some time in learning everything you can about it, first, and then second, go about it slowly and carefully... again, like anything else. If you do that and get good at it (practice on a couple of old, cracked devices, whose contacts are up, whether yours or someone else's) you can even turn it into a side-business, as I did, even if just in your home town . . . there's a HUGE demand for it and nowhere near enough supply, probably in part because some people are busy telling everyone they have no chance of succeeding. Don't believe them for one goddam second.
Only attempt it if you are very good with a heat gun.
Thanks! Have you personally tried to do this? Was it successful? What adhesive is needed to glue the new glass onto the frame?
i have done galaxy s3, s4 , is this similaR?
I replace it, following the guide posted in here, just to let you know there is some glue or something so you have to be careful, by the way anyone knows where i can buy that glue??
Replacement of outer glass on mobile phone in Cape Town instead of entire LCD screen - costs less!
You can find the glue on Amazon. Its Liquid Optical Clear Adhesive. Its called LOCA.
These repairs are a challenge because of the adhesive. You need a UV light to cure the adhesive when you reassemble.
Try a guitar strong along with a heat gun to separate rt he glass from the LCD.
It takes patience... Don't rush the seperation of the glass from the LCD.
Don't do it.. The glass is way to sticky and will crack everything underneath it when you try. Lesson learned.
no, its best to just buy the lcd&digitizer (cheapest i found was 80 or so on ebay)
that repair is not too bad if you just keep track of the screws which isnt hard (there are 7 in total) and refer to the teardown. I have done this replacement about three times and can tear the phone down with my eyes closed
here i made a video
about how to change it in theory. it is very accurate in whiteboard.
it is about 30 minutes but it will help you to understand all you must do.
nexus are a little more difficult than galaxy but they are simillar
here it is other video about samsung s4 i know it is not your phone but it might help you

Yes, you can replace only front glass. Because its not connected to phone's touch screen glass. Its separated from inside screen. you can buy front glass online at amazaon.com

To clearify my question:
I would like to use only a product like this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/All-New-Outer-Sc...
That costs only 34$ instead of needing to exchange the entire screen + digitizer for a much higher cost (http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-OEM-Samsung-...). Thanks
